    Okay a penny difference in price and from what I remember, the ebay shipping is probably going to be cheaper.

    Each has advantages and disadvantages.

    Abrasion on line: Figure 9 can be more than Line Lok and maybe a lot more depending on application

    The Figure 9 can be adjusted down to a very small gap, the Line Lok can only be adjusted down to half the gap unless the knot securing the Line Lok is changed.

    The Figure 9 can accommodate a wider range of cord diameters than the Line Lok. I have used the small Figure 9 on cord ranging from 1.75 mm up to 3 mm diameters. The Line Lok can handle the 1.75 mm and the 2.2 mm cord I have, but definitely cannot handle the 3 mm cord.

    It is easier to set the Figure 9 to the middle of a line and then pull the end tight. The Line Lok can only be set-up in one configuration.

    It is a lot easier to pull cord very tight with the Figure 9 than with the Line Lok, significantly easier.

    Both are very easy to use and change the tightness of the cord.
    thx 4 the info...

    FYI, the newer small, black plastic figure 9's weigh 2g = 0.07oz.
    Line Lok still wins the weight category.

    The plastic ones are light... but there have been reports on the forums of catastrophic failures. Like everything... it's a trsdeoff.

    Does anybody worry about puncturing Sil tarps with the small figure 9's if they are left attached when the tarp is stuffed?

    Not really. The 9's aren't very sharp, and they would have to be compressed *very* tightly to damage the sil.
